Humm... you know when you call in love.... and if you are able to adopt, those 3 may turn into 4 or 5.

DD - 4, 30lbs, 40in
My old bessy: Cowmoo Blvd (older 65lb version)
My mom's Trailblazer: another Cowmoo Blvd

DS - 3 in a month, 37lbs, 38/38.5in (not totally sure)
Mine: SK Radian XTSL
Mom's: another XTSL

DS - 5 weeks, ~12lbs (this week, he keeps packing it on ), ~23in
Mine: Lamaze True Fit Premier
Spare: Safety 1st OnBoard 35. We've never used it in the car because while the base installs great in my third row, there's not enough front to back for the seat itself. I got it on sale primarily for occasions where baby wearing isn't as practical (dr appt for me or olders, church, restaurant, grocery shopping alone)

I'm a SAHM so mine don't really have a need for seats in my husband's car. If he decides to take one or both with him somewhere he just drives mine since ours are exactly the same, just with different paint, different CD players, and his has a sunroof.

Ah, for the most part, you can put whatever kind of stereo in anything you buy with whatever quality or size you want.
And no leather? I leather. No stains! lol

I'd rather do it all together as we'll never do it. For years we have been saying we will do a hitch for my car and never have.

I'm a vegetarian and don't wear leather. I may do it for my husband but the leather smell really really bothers me. My mom just got a leather car and it was terrible to get into. No stains would be nice. We don't eat in our car and only on rare occasions let our son have a sippy in the car and he normally will hold it till we can take it from him.

Good! My husband offered me the new car but I don't care enough about cars and don't feel like freaking out trying to keep a new car perfect anymore. He has a long commute so he gets the new one.

You are much braver than me. Two kids would be my limit. But, my husband has 3, and he's like 4 is plenty. (we'll see. if we try again I don't want to do it till this fall when our son is 3 and more independent) Its too bad I don't really worry about what he wants. He just gets to pay for the next one since I did the first one. I just tell him to sign the paperwork and agree to everything the social worker says.

We are debating between an SUV and another sports car. (I don't think our kid is going to agree to another SUV as he's a sports car boy).
If I happen upon a sports car to try it, I will.

I am actually on the low end for what I normally have right now. I sold a couple extras that I didn't really like and gave 1 away and 2 are in the hands of the USPS right now. Once your kid PL's you need something else to obsess over since diapers are out of the picture lol I am in the process of revamping our stash of seats and I'm not sure what I am going to put where. I really need an infinite slide harness in my grandmothers and dads car for transporting 2 different kiddos so there will be some moving around soon
